Abstract

In this decade, with the rise of data science accompanying the growth of e-commerce, many technologies have been developed. An example of these technologies is Blockchain, which has appeared to overcome security problems potentially. This research assesses Blockchain's implementation in supply chains through a methodology that uses deep learning and agent-based simulation. A case study was utilized to observe and validate research developments. The unique method predicts intrusions by using deep learning, and agent-based modeling reproduces artificial but convincing agents (e.g., customers, companies, hackers, and cyber pirates) in a computer-generated market. Trust and other relationships are systematically captured to represent Blockchain additions. Once again, the agent-based simulation model's environment permits hypothetical interactions and emergent features by coordinating supply and demand for business-to-consumer e-commerce events. The case study based on a real environment shows that the proposed method can determine the feasibility of the business model and Blockchain implementation's potential contributions.
